When Proteins Court Each Other, the Dance Moves Matter

proteinvibes.jpg

Proteins shake their bodies and wave their limbs — essentially dancing — all with the goal of optimizing their interaction with other molecules, including other proteins. A new study shows that, in biological courtship, dance moves matter. The findings help to lay a foundation for the development of drugs targeting molecular vibrations. Such pharmaceuticals would block proteins from carrying out tasks that contribute to disease.

Exact Replication of Cancer Studies May Speed Development of Improved Cancer Drugs

In response to rising concern that many published scientific results may be false, the Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology set out to replicate findings from the 50 most cited cancer studies from 2010–2012. A perspective in AACC’s Clinical Chemistry journal discusses the project’s preliminary results and suggests changes the research community can make to prevent reproducibility issues from inhibiting cancer care.

More IV Fluids, Fewer C-Sections

By pooling the data of several studies, Thomas Jefferson University researchers showed that a higher rate of IV fluids not only decreased C-section rates, but also shortened the overall length of labor by one hour, as well as shortened the pushing phase. The results were published online as an accepted article in Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica.

An Epidemic of Epipens

Researchers at the University of Birmingham have found that prescriptions of adrenaline autoinjectors (commonly called ‘epipens’) for children with allergies have increased markedly in the last decade, with nearly four devices a year provided per child.

New Desktop Reference Guide Highlights Adverse Health Effects of Chemicals for Physicians and Their Patients

9780190490911.jpg

More than 87,000 chemicals are available commercially in the U.S., including analogues of bisphenol A (BPA), an industrial chemical that is used in consumer products. Frederick vom Saal, a University of Missouri endocrinologist and researcher, has studied BPA and other chemicals and their effects on humans and animals for more than 20 years. Now, vom Saal has released Integrative Environmental Medicine, a comprehensive book outlining practical resources and tools, such as websites and smartphone apps, to help health care practitioners promote healthier choices for themselves and their patients.
